Sports Toto Malaysia Sdn Bhd sponsored RM25,000 to MBKS for the Kuching Festival Sports Toto 3-on-3 Basketball Jamboree 2015 yesterday.
MBKS Mayor Datuk James Chan accepted the mock cheque during the handover ceremony, expressing his gratitude to Sports Toto for being the main sponsor for the basketball event.

“For this event, I am hoping to see more participation especially from the youth as well as a more racially diverse participation from the community,” said Chan during the handover ceremony.
More than just a sport or a favourite leisure activity, Chan said that he hoped that the basketball event could be a way to promote a healthy lifestyle among the community.
Also present during the handover ceremony were Sports Toto manager (Communications) Giam Say Khoon, Kuching area sales executive Helen Tan Puay Cheng, East Malaysia regional executive Lilia Chong, and MBKS Councillor Sim Thong Poh.
The basketball tournament will be held at the foyer of Dewan MBKS.
